Infrastructure an Economy Boost

Dec. 8, 2020 – The Biden administration is eyeing a major infrastructure package as a way to boost the economy and advance its climate priorities, with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle eager for progress after four years of fits and starts under President Trump, according to an article in The Hill. Democrats and Republicans alike agree that the nation’s crumbling roads and bridges are badly in need of repairs, but those bipartisan sentiments weren’t enough to get a trillion dollar spending bill across the finish line during the Trump administration. The coronavirus pandemic, however, has created an opening for large spending bills, and infrastructure proponents are hoping there will be momentum for legislation early next year to help the faltering economy.
